Is there any update on regulatory acceptance of eDNA methods for fish by the Environment Agency in England?

The Environment Agency is itself using eDNA for monitoring fish communities, and is working on a tool that would generate a Water Framework Directive (WFD)-compliant index score for lake fish communities, based on the work carried out in collaboration with the University of Hull (e.g. Lawson-Handley et al., 2019). It is best to check directly with the agencies with regard to specific projects.
